Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Garnacha de Fuego, a 100% Grenache cuvee, was aged in both stainless steel and neutral French oak. There are 10,000 cases for the United States. This amazing wine boasts a dark ruby/purple color along with a sweet kiss of jammy black cherries intertwined with crushed rock notes that give the wine an undeniable minerality. As it hits the palate, a full-bodied, voluptuous texture takes hold and the flavor profile moves towards blacker fruits (ripe raspberries and black currants) intermixed with camphor and forest floor. This full-bodied, rich, glycerin-filled effort should drink well for 4-5 years, perhaps longer. "

Many notes of dark berries, chocolate, tobacco, pepper and spice. Wife said it had some "Christmas" notes... apples and cinnamon. Truly great wine for $8.99. Best wine I've ever tasted under $10. Highly recommended.

better than I expected. Bigger a little spice, but a lot of fruit and a big finish. By far the best wine I have ever had under $10, maybe the best under $20. Should benefit from short term cellaring.

3, maybe 3.5 stars. Much better on night one, night two was definitely off.

Straight out of the bottle, it's a little off balance. Even though it's still young, let it decant an hour or so before tasting. It helps.

Much touted, but a bit sweet and almost syrupy for my taste.
